        2. App. On the App, players may click on either of the Promotions buttons, select the Florida Jackpots Bonus Play Promotion and follow the directions.

      2. the player will only be required to register one time; and
      3. the player's entry history will be cumulative among the entry platforms.

    3. A player may earn multiple entries during the entry period; however, each ticket number can only be entered one time to earn one entry. The purchase price of a ticket does not affect the number of entries produced. Entries that include training tickets that were produced by a retailer terminal while in training mode or tickets with invalid ticket numbers will be disqualified from the drawing. The odds of winning depend on the number of entries in the drawing. All entries are subject to validation by the Florida Lottery and may be disqualified if eligibility requirements are not met. Lottery tickets should not be mailed to the Lottery for entry into the drawing. Lottery tickets received in the mail by the Florida Lottery will not be entered into the drawing and will not be returned.

Players who purchase a FLORIDA LOTTO with Double Play™ ticket, or JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY with Combo ticket will receive a promo code printed on the ticket that can be entered into the drawing to earn five (5) additional entries in the drawing. The promo code must be entered at the time the player enters the corresponding ticket into the drawing. A total of four (4) different promotional codes will be offered during the Promotion, one for each week of the Promotion. Each promo code is only valid for the corresponding week for which it is designated and can only be entered one time. However, more than one different promo code may be entered with a different FLORIDA LOTTO with Double Play™ ticket, or JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY with Combo ticket during the corresponding week for which it is designated.
